Completely different service lines so unfortunately not likely to get responses from folks in your shoes. That said, based on your response sounds like you need a change and aren’t happy with the trajectory and/or project experience of your current role. I see lots of awesome exits from data and analytics, so it’s not as much of the two option path you’ve described. I do a lot of CFO advisory woro and know folks in audit - it’s not thaaat different. Given that, I’d use audit as your baseline for the CFO advisory transfer and compare that to an exit to a D&A role

First time poster here! After spending 4 years as a mid-level ops manager, I tried to break into HR through talent acquisition. Now after 6 years in TA, I've had a hard time getting out of it. My goal was always to get into a more broad HRBP position, but I've since worked for smaller orgs without a solid HR career path. When I ask about my career goals, they keep telling me, "Soon!" Or "Maybe in 6 months!" I'm testing SPHR in June. Any advice for securing the type of role I'm aiming for?

Any interview tips for Project Manager roles in software development? I was moved to this role about 2 years ago and soon looking to jump to another company, but unsure of what to focus on talking about. I’ve tested the waters and the feedback from one interviewer who was generous enough to provide it was that I made myself sound like a technologist rather than a PM because I was too focused on the product and it’s details instead of the project management details.
